Side panels (CHIPs) allow supplementary context-sensitive information relating to the object and are currently available in the web-dynpro and NWBC applications only.
Unfortunately these side panels are not available in the standard GUI for Windows.
However, simple developments/enhancements allow us to create side panels in the traditional GUI for Windows environment. An example is shown for Plant Maintenance work orders.
You can get more info about side panels at this link.
